nuclear pores in protists

Does anyone know of any protists who do not possess nuclear pore complexes
characteristic of Dictyostelium, yeasts, and metazoans?

Have there been any comparisons of densities of nuclear pore complexes
between or among protists, or between micro- and macronuclei?

My search of the literature has so far been fruitless for these two
questions, and any information would be greatly appreciated.

(These are just side questions arising while preparing to discuss nuclear
pore complexes.  Answers could possibly shed some light on phylogenetic
relationships, IF there are any differences.)
